as prosecution and conviction. >> former congresswoman gabby giffords will make some remarks before this senate hearing. are you optimistic at all that congress could do anything? >> i'm not optimistic about this congress in any way, shape or form but i think there is a momentum to at least take some incremental steps and in the issue of gun violence or the depth of the cause by it, incremental steps help because they save lives, if we could have kept the assault weapon out of the hands of the young man in the newtown school shootings, those 26 lives would have been saved by just keeping it out of his hands so i'm a great cleaver in believer in incremental steps. it's been done in new york and boston and l.a. >> wayne lapierre says congress won't pass any new gun control measures. is he wrong? >> i think he's wrong this time out. i think that the increase in background checks will probably go through. i think there's some potential for the limiting the number of ammunition clips that hold excessive rounds certainly the mental health issues and some of the schoo
